ABOUT THE JUBILEE! DINNER SERIES


The Jubilee! A Celebration of African American Cooking Dinner Series brings the conversation into key cities where a strong black food legacy still impacts communities of color. Dinners will feature classic and modern interpretations of African American foods and beverages created by black chefs, restaurateurs, mixologists, and wine and beverage experts. Talks will challenge thinking about the foods that comprise the traditional African American core diet, the ways those foods (and the people who prepared them) have been characterized by society, the impact of those representations on our communities, the ways food continues to shape economic opportunities and community wellness and what some folks are doing about it.

ABOUT JUBILEE: RECIPES FROM TWO CENTURIES OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN COOKING


Adapted from historical texts and rare African-American cookbooks, the 125 recipes of Jubilee paint a rich, varied picture of the true history of African-American cooking: a cuisine far beyond soul food.​ Jubilee has been named one of fall’s best cookbooks by The New York Times, Bon Appétit, Eater, Food & Wine, Kitchn, and Chowhound​. Toni Tipton-Martin, the first African-American food editor of a daily American newspaper, is the author of the James Beard Award-winning The Jemima Code, a history of African-American cooking found in–and between–the lines of three centuries’ worth of African-American cookbooks. Tipton-Martin builds on that research in Jubilee, adapting recipes from those historic texts for the modern kitchen. What we find is a world of African-American cuisine–made by enslaved master chefs, free caterers, and black entrepreneurs and culinary stars–that goes far beyond soul food. It’s a cuisine that was developed in the homes of the elite and middle class; that takes inspiration from around the globe; that is a diverse, varied style of cooking that has created much of what we know of as American cuisine.
